Live from Italy.. Favorite foods! Part 1

Roc Me Out boutique was developed with heart because of my love for retail. But if you know me, then you already know that food of all kinds is my other passion!  Living in a new country has allowed me to try a variety of new cuisines. Here are my favorite items so far in Italy.

 

#1 The BEST pizzeria EVER in my opinion.. Just cannot get enough.

#2 The real gelato in Italy is unmatched. Any flavor you can imagine, whether you want a fruity flavor or a rich dolce option like chocolate.

#3 Local cafe where you can sit inside or outside. Their specialty is serving fresh drinks which comes along with complimentary snacks.. Slightly obsessed at this point.

My boyfriend and I make quite the team in the kitchen. We brought our American favorites to the table tonight.

Not only is my new boutique (ROC ME OUT-  www.rocmeout.com) my creative outlet but I love to cook! I love all foods including a healthy base with the regular indulgents too… I just cant help myself!

Yes, the VERY cheesy and bacon filled potato skins were my favorite. Of course..

Easy to do:

Clean your selected potatoes, poke a few fork holes, rub on salt and olive oil for flavor, then bake in the oven for about an hour. Next, scoop out the potato to make boats.. Bake the boats for about 15 min on each side. Fill with your favorite toppings and pop back in the over just enough to heat the toppings! I top mine with sour cream and enjoy!

Homemade fresh and spicy salsa!

Salsa is a family recipe that brings a punch.. It is the fresh chopped jalapenos, diced tomatoes, and cilantro that brings the bold flavor!
